, president of the united states of america. >> mr. president, mr. secretary general, fellow delegates, ladies and gentleman, i would like to begin today by telling you about an american named chris stevens. chris was born in a town called grass valley, california, the son of a lawyer and a musician. as a young man, chris joined the peace corps, and taught english in morocco. and he came to love and respect the people of north africa and the middle east. he would carry that commitment throughout his life. as a diplomat, he worked from egypt to syria, from saudi arabia to libya. he was known for walking the streets of the cities where he worked -- tasting the local food, meeting as many people as he could, speaking arabic, listening with a broad smile. chris went to benghazi in the early days of the libyan revolution, arriving on a cargo ship. as america's representative, he helped the libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for the future in which the rights of all libyans would be respected. and after the revolution, he supported the birt
rab world. mo muhammad morsi made those comments ahead of his trips to the united states and says that the u.s. needs to show a greater respect to arab values and culture. reports say that he attempted to meet with president obama at the white house, but dropped that request later. >> absolutely no one intentionally or unintentionally misled anybody involved in this. >> the obama administration has taken a lot of heat on what is happening in libya. republicans are calling the way the attack was handled, quote, a debacle. thank you, very much, great to see you. i would like to start -- >> good to be here. >> with a quote from senator bob corker, briefed by secretary of state clinton and several intelligence leaders late last week about the attacks on benghazi and what was happening in egypt. he said, this is a direct quote -- that was the most useless, worthless briefing i have attended in a long time. this from a senator, not prone it overstatement. what's your take on that? >> i agree. we also in the house received the same briefing. i don't know if they said the same things, but
also know that they called for the revenge against the united states for a killing by a terrorist by a drone attack. they had ample warning. did they fall down on the job? >> it seems like there were a number of cascade go failures. it's fair to say it was probably a serious mistake for the ambassador stevens to go to benghazi. it was a serious mistake for them to have a marine detachment at our facility in benghazi. i'll say this for stevens. he was a brave guy. he was involved in a transition and wanted to be involved in the transition for building a new libya. you have to take some kind of risks like that. >> there is no question about that. but people knew that libya was a terrorist center. almost all of our facilities is secured by marine guards. it would be strange marine guards guarding bahamas but not in tripoli. >> so why did the administration go to the story. it was all about the video reaction in the muslim world -- let's face it an obscure youtube video that nobody knew about until after the riot started? >> i think the key question. i don't know why they went to that
in the united states senate where i've worked with many republicans to do important things like cutting spending, putting a cap on federal spending, like banning earmarks, like cutting taxes, over a trillion dollars for small businesses and working families. cleaning up war contracting and protecting and promoting american jobs. todd has worked closely with michele bachmann, and together them and a few others have really pushed things that would really harm missouri families. on march 8th of 2011, todd akin said i don't like social security, i think it's a bad investment. he's gone on in this campaign to delineate what is the triple whammy to social security. not only does he not like it, he would privatize it, put it on the roller coaster of wall street. he would raise the retirement age, and he would lower the benefit. on august 18th of 2011, he said medicare was unconstitutional. and since that time he has, in fact, voted several times to voucherrize medicare, to turn seniors over to private insurance companies, to arm wrestle with them for coverage and whether their claims will be paid and m
to host this debate. my name a jonathan dine and i'm a libertarian candidate for the united states senate. like many of you, i'm tired of the constant fighting of the republicans and democrats. beating the other team has become more important. america is now on the verge of a financial collapse and both parties are to blame with their wreckless tax, borrow and spend policies. neither party seriously about balancing the budget or lowering your taxes or restoring your personal freedom. for as long as i can remember, republican and democrat politicians offering up solutions. higher and higher taxes. enough is enough. as a libertarian senator, i will stand up for your personal freedom, i'm socially accepting and tolerance. i'm also fiscalally responsible. i'm tired of the wreckless spending and the wreckless earmarks as your senator, i will vote no to wreckless spending, vote no to any legislation where spending exceeds revenue. i will advocate on the part of the balanced budget amendment. the government should live within its means just like the people of missouri. supporting my candidacy m
the united states and went to mexico and supposed to be tracked to gun cartel. two of those guns were found in the murder scene. >> this statement from representative issa. this is one more step to justice for the family of briantery. ultimately not only the bandid but those who put the gun in their hand must be held accountable. peter doocy is following the story. >> jesus mesa is in the custody of mexican authorities who apprehended him. five men are charged with the murder of u.s. border patrol agent brian terry. they are not saying which man fired the fatal shot. but all of the five then crossed the southern border to run drug smugglers and was spotted by the u.s. border patrol who engaged them in a fight that left agent terry dead. two of the suspects left behind were linked to a united states justice department sting fast and furious designed to let bad guys bay -- buy the guns and go across the border and hope they would build cases against the leader of drug cartel. they are trying to find out who is to blame for fast and furious. but president obama exerted executive privilege the
for president of the united states, for god's sake. what are you going to do? >> david gregory, they just went round and round and round. and it was like jell-o. he could not get mitt romney to stand still on anything except to promise tax cuts without in any way specifying how they were going to get paid for it. >> yeah. exactly. i'm not going to raise taxes on the american people. >> are we being too tough on these two guys, or were they really, really general in your eyes, too? >> they continue to amaze me, both the principles romney and ryan and their staff, they come to these shows with no news to me. and so the news they're going to make is news that's negative from their point of view. i thought, you know, they know what questions they're going to get. one thing we haven't discussed yet about romney is his answer about why he didn't mention the troops in his speech at the convention. he got asked about it and gave a very weak answer. >> he was also asked -- >> he was asked again and gave an even weaker answer. >> somebody who is really facing this unemployment crisis head on. and again,

. >> madam chairwoman, delegates, i accept your nomination for president of the united states. >> reporter: facing the political fight of his life, the 44th president of the united states made the case for his re-election, asking americans to stick with him for another four years despite tough economic times. >> our problems can be solved, our challenges can be met. the path we offer may be harder but it leads to a better place, and i'm asking you to choose that future. >> reporter: four years later the president felt he had to appeal to voters exhausted by the tone of american politics. >> i know campaigns may seem small, even sill sly sometimes. trivial things become big attractions. if you're sick of me approving this message, believe me, so am i. >> reporter: but obama pulled no punches when it came to his republican rival. his references to opponent turned him into a punch line. >> my opponent is new to foreign policy. you may not be ready if you can't visit the olympics without insulting our closest ally. if you can't afford to start a business or go to college, take my opponent's ad
plan in the united states today. i don't know what to say. i'm speechless. >> he clearly did know what he was talking about on morning joe there and he worked enough on the issue in massachusetts to know what he was talking about. and that appearance on "morning joe" was at the beginning of this presidential campaign. he knows then that he's going to be running for president. so he's giving a campaign answer then which he can no longer give, apparently. but as the governor just mentioned, one of the things that you can get at the emergency room is a very, very big bill that can put you into bankruptcy, isn't it? >> the emergency room is a great place to get patched up, if you have a true emergency, a heart attack, but it takes only a few hours in the emergency room to run up a bill not just in the thousands of dollars. there are very few people who can pay that. the bills get very expensive, people can't pay it and the cost gets passed on to the rest of us in the form of higher taxes or insurance premiums. nobody knows that well, governor romney who used to make that argument all the t

secretary, casts all 188 votes for the president and the next president of the united states, barack obama. >> thank you, mr. chairman. >> the convention wraps up tonight with speeches from vice president biden and, of course, the big speech from president obama. the vice president did pay a visit to the time warner cable arena yesterday for a walk-through on the stage. the vice president getting a feel for what he'll be looking at later tonight. now, the vice president and the president were supposed to give their speeches outdoors in front of 74,000 people at bank of america stadium. but democrats had to move the speech back inside because of weather concerns. by the way, that change in venue means they're not going to have any balloons. no balloon drop at a convention. the bottom of the hour we talk to margaret hoover and richard socarides. >>> former president clinton did not do it in his speech, neither did mitt romney. that's why u.s. service members will be listening to president tonight to see if he mentions the war in afghanistan. we go live to kabul, coming up.

$16,000 every second george allen was the united states senator. voted to raise the debt ceiling four times, voted to raise his own salary four times. now he's talking like a conservative, but his record shows he can't have another crack at it because his actions don't match his word. again, i think the right strategy is an aggregated examination of deductions rather than fighting issue-to-issue. you can have the amount or percentage vary by income or how the tax code is already. that's the most likely path to lead to success. >> we're out of time on that answer. >> can i have time to rebut? >> not according to your rules. i like more than less, but going on. >> governor allen, virginia voters are divided on whether they want the affordable care act to stay or go because it's not completely ruled out and because it's so complex. do you want to completely get rid of the law as a stands and start over on health care reform from strach or favor -- scratch or favor another method? >> i'll use the first part to rebut comments tim made. tim talked about $16,000 of debt. now it's the spendin

that a candidate for the president of the united states would go behind closed door and declare to a group of wealthy donors that half of the american people view themselves as victims, entitled to handouts and are unwilling to take personal responsibility for their lives. it's not my job to care about those people. we can never convince they should take personality responsibility and care for their lives. he's saying, andrea, how does anybody deal with that? >> that is the most damaging part of it because he's suggesting not only that he can't get their votes but that he has responsibility to them as a future leader. now, let me just say, as joan just pointed out, that most people on food stamps are white. so he's speaking to a he have -- about a very broad segment. >> when he's talking to white people, that's now not how they say it. >> mitt romney wants to help all americans struggling in the obama campaign as the governor has made clear he's concerned about the growing number of people dependent on the federal government, including the record number of people on food stamps, nearly one
